The Hummingbird House story

Hummingbird House is Queensland’s only children’s hospice and one of only three children’s hospices in Australia.

We provide specialised paediatric palliative care services to babies, children and young people with a life-limiting condition, helping them make every moment precious when time is short. Hummingbird House supports hundreds of families from right across Queensland and strives to provide true choice about when, where and how they receive our care. Our vision is to be here for every eligible family that needs us.
